Minimal OMSA installation on RedHat Linux (RHEL)

Hi,

I'm trying to install the minimum necessary packages for OMSA in our infrastructure. We have a combination of RedHat 5/6/7 running on different Dell servers (gen 11/12/13th and 14th in the near future) and we are trying to get only the base packages but without missing racadm for any of the platforms I mentioned.

We are currently using these packages as base:

  • srvadmin-base
  • srvadmin-idrac7
  • srvadmin-idracadm7

, but I would like to know if these are the right ones instead (that in the future will include idrac8 or new ones):

  • srvadmin-base
  • srvadmin-idrac
  • srvadmin-idracadm

Is this correct? I couldn't find any documentation or topics in the forums. Thanks in advance!

Regards,

Bruno

Re: Minimal OMSA installation on RedHat

Hi,

I do not see a srvadmin-idrac after idrac 7, just idracadm.

Re: Minimal OMSA installation on RedHat

Hi Josh,

The first is dependency resolution when tried to install the different packages, I noticed there is one more package listed (srvadmin-idrac-ivmcli).

I'm wondering if using the second command is the right set of components needed to work with RACADM and even with OpenManage Enterprise.

# yum install srvadmin-base srvadmin-idrac7 srvadmin-idracadm7

Re: Minimal OMSA installation on RedHat

Hi Bruno,

I see from the log that srvadmin-base was installed, which is what you need to control OMSA via RACADM.

This page has some helpful info on the Dell Linux Repository: http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/omsa.html.
